To help the board of S.A.W. we have several committees and working groups. The difference between the two is that in a workgroup you discuss current events with as a goal to obtain information and opinions about topics. A committee requires a more intensive collaboration and next to discussing topics you can also for instance organise actions or activities.
Within the education workgroup we talk about current issues within the WUR. For instance about the effects of the extended daytime schedule, how the social science masters in Wageningen get less financing and study spaces.
Do you have a strong opinion about the WUR and are you interested in giving your opinion and talking about education issues in Wageningen? Then the education workgroup could be something for you! For more information or to join, send an email to " target="_blank" rel="nofollow" >.

Many international students are experiencing some problems during their time in Wageningen. These are mainly encountered at the beginning. That is why we are working with various parties to produce an information document for newly arrived international students. This will include things like how to register with a bank or health insurance to where you can buy furniture or a bicycle. We will also translate some documents from the municipality and offer them on our website to offer everyone the best possible student time.
The S.A.W. is an alliance and will therefore put pressure on organisation by organizing campaigns or approaching the press. Moreover, we only exist shortly, so communication to the outside world is very important to create familiarity and legitimacy.
